Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

A private beach that plays up to all those Caribbean stereotypes (think cashmere sands, dazzling waters, and gentle trade winds) plays host to one of Antigua’s latest luxury retreats. Watched over by Fort Barrington, Royalton Antigua lives up to its name – letting you live like royalty with almost every treat included in their All-In Luxury® promise. You can sip handcrafted cocktails, surf the WiFi, snorkel and kayak in the bay, and even try out scuba diving with an introductory lesson – all without dipping into your holiday spending money. And you can dine without picking up the tab too, with more than a dozen restaurants and bars covering everything from beachside burgers to sumptuous steakhouse classics. Adding their own special twist, they also feature extra touches like their Sports Event Guarantee™ (so you can watch big sports events on TV) and weekly pool and beach parties.

WoW, forget the rest Royalton Antigua is the Best!!!. We arrived at the resort and was welcomed with so must love it was amazing, all the team where truly pleased to see us and nothing was to much trouble, Tamara, Tonya and Roxanne make you feel wanted, we where in our room within 25 minutes from arriving on the 9th floor room 10911 a fantastic view overlooking the lagoon. Every member of staff from the person who cleans the toilets to the general manager Chris makes you feel wanted, the food is incredible we spend most evenings dinning in the caribbean restaurant enjoying lobster, yes lobster which was all included in the price. The beach is one of the best i have ever seen, white sand and clean blue seas await you, it was like walking into a warm bath. The beach barbeque ( Wording Brown ) serves up the most delicious burgers going with jerk chicken if you can manage it. The excursion ( Ultimate circumnavigation ) trip around the island by power boat is a must a great way to the island by boat, great views, great food, great company, and Great Value for money, its like three trips in one. I speak from the heart when i say this place is amazing, it takes time to develop perfection and perfection is not far from being achieved in Antigua. We plan to return in 2020 so keep up the great work everyone and thank you for making our holiday a special one. Adrian & Carol Ellis Read less

My husband and I came to Royalton Antigua because we were at the Royalton Negril last year for our honeymoon and we loved it. We came to the Royalton Antigua for our 1st Anniversary and we had the best butlers. Jevonte, Jason, Jessica, Emerson and our concierge Simson were the best. They made our Anniversary one to remember. They decorated our room with champagne and red mood lighting and flower pedals for our anniversary, our door had a Happy Anniversary Banner on it, they checked on us at the beach and they made all of our dinner reservations every day for the 6 days we were there. Jevonte and Emerson arranged an around the whole island tour which was amazing,that they took us on their day off. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Royalton Antigua and they really did treat us like Diamond Club. We are coming back next year..the resort is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the food is amazing. 365 beaches and we only saw 4 beaches but the sand is soft the water is crystal blue and warm. The beds are comfortable....We loved it. Read less
